Many of you know that I am a long time fan of novelist Ann Patchett. I was excited to see (really belatedly) that The New York Times had done a piece on her Nashville home.
Obviously, she had me at the 'pink washed brick' - but her essay made me cry. It's how I feel about home - the house itself, the Beans and now The Boy. It is "... a good life, wrapped in a good house."
Favorite quote: "I am away more than I would like... and I never walk through my own front door without thinking: thank-you-thank-you-thank-you."
Love the paint color, the light in the hall, the space, the doors - what a beautiful room!
Rose (the puppy) had a hard life. Ms. Patchett just wrote in Vogue that Rose is recently deceased after 15 happy years. Rest in Peace little lovely.
